For people who have previously earned bachelor’s degrees and desire to enter the paralegal profession, a post-baccalaureate certificate offers a way to enter field without earning a second degree. Post-baccalaureate certificates may be offered by colleges, universities, vocational schools, business schools and proprietary schools. They can sometimes be found through the Continuing Education Department or an Extension Division.

Post-baccalaureate certificates are designed to complement previously-earned bachelor’s degrees with focused coursework in paralegal studies and few, if any, general education requirements. Program requirements vary, but because they are so specialized, many can be completed in one academic year or with eight to 24 semester hours of paralegal coursework. ABA approved paralegal schools can be found here.
